Kenya Presidential Election: Raila Odinga, William Ruto In Tight Race

by Kunle Awosiyan

Provisional results suggest a tight presidential race in Kenya between Deputy President William Ruto and former prime minister Raila Odinga.

With more than 90% of results posted from thousands of individual districts, local tallies of the raw data suggest little separates the pair.

However it could be several days before the official result is known.

seventy seven years old Odinga, – a long-serving opposition leader, nicknamed Baba (“father”) by his supporters, is running for president for a fifth time.

while fifty five years old Ruto, who has tried to emphasise his connection with ordinary Kenyans by calling himself a “hustler”, is taking his first stab at the presidency.
